Valentine's Lovin'

I was listening to the Valentine's Day This American Life podcast and there was a story about a couple who fell in love during college and spent their 20s together. As the man described their perfect relationship, I thought to my own: best friends, travel well together, great sex, can talk about anything. They, however, did not get married and have a kid a year after they met, and ended up breaking up (after a month-long rumspringa where they were allowed to have sex with whomever they wanted). Fortunately for us, we didn't feel the need to sleep around and experience a normal 20s experience, because life is pretty satisfying and wonderful as is. 

I love this man.

"I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman." - Anais Nin
